SANTA FE, NM--Two prominent researchers in the field of agricultural genomics joined the National Center for Genome Resources this month, the center announced. William Beavis, formerly the manager of a research group developing informatics and statistical methods to associate genes with expression of complex or quantitative traits for Pioneer Hi-Bred, will serve as the center's program leader in the area of complex traits. Pedro Mendes is a biochemical scientist who wrote the Gepasi metabolic simulator software. He was a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth. The two will contribute to the development of an integrated biological knowledge system encompassing a broad range of genetic data, the center said.
